In this paper, we propose a color modification scheme for web-pages described by HTML markup language in order to realize barrier-free color vision on the internet. First, we present an abstracted image model, which describes a color image as a combination of several regions divided with color information, and define some mutual color relations between(More)
Improvements in image quality and quantitation measurement, and the addition of detailed anatomical structures are important topics for single-photon emission tomography (SPECT). The goal of this study was to develop a practical system enabling both nonuniform attenuation correction and image fusion of SPECT images by means of high-performance X-ray(More)
Background. Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) has been developed initially for intravascular imaging of coronary arteries to investigate vascular structures. We applied the IVUS catheter extravascularly to the cervical carotid arteries to obtain intra-operative ultrasound images during carotid endarterectomy (CEA). Intra-operative assessments of the distal(More)
The authors report a successful reconstruction of the total upper eyelid in conjunction with the gliding surface of the extraocular muscles. A 21-year-old woman sustained an inner layer defect of her right upper eyelid together with avulsions of the superior levator palpebrae muscle and the superior orbital fat. Her right superior rectus muscle was exposed,(More)
The concept of a compact ion particle accelerator has become attractive in view of recent progress in laserdriven ion acceleration. We report here the recent progress in the laser-driven proton beam transport at the Photo Medical Research Center (PMRC) at JAEA, which is established to address the challenge of laser-driven ion accelerator development for ion(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to develop a simpler and more rapid analytical method for unbound teicoplanin in serum. METHODS A new analytical method was developed by modifying an existing fluorescence polarization immunoassay (FPIA) method. The validation of the developed FPIA method was compared in the quantification of unbound teicoplanin with(More)
